I was 12 when I started out playing the guitar which I picked-up back in 1983, it had always been a dream of my to play the guitar. That dream start when I was 8 years old when a friend of my brought in a copy of KISS ALIVE for show and tell in second grade can you imagine. That summer for my birthday I wanted a copy of that record and it turned out to be my first record. I remember having this birthday party with all my little friends and I decided to put that record on for everone,I,ll never forget it "YOU WANTED THE BEST YOU GOT THE BEST THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD KISS" and out thourgh the speakers came DEUCE it's a moment I'll never forget me and all my little friends jumping up and down listening to that record thats a great memory. From that day forward I wanted to play guitar and play in a band. So I was 12 and I got me first guitar and a friend of my in my neighborhood could play so he would come over and show me some cords the first song I ever learned was "Crazy Train" from Ozzy Osbuorne. From there I would learn things here and there, than I finally got into my first band when I was in seventh grade. It was a great experience and I remember having alot of fun playing with the guys. I pretty much spent my high school years playing in alot of different bands and just having fun doing it, I would say playing the high school talent show with my band chaos back in 88' was diffently the high light of my high school years. After high school my band Shattered Image was still going strong we had been together since 86' but by the fall of 88' things started to go bad and I left the group to do my own thing. For the last 12 years I have been in and out of bands so now I've decided to put together my own CD. This CD titled "Prelude" is going to feature 5 songs on it when its done, right know 2 of the 5 songs are done and are avalible on mp3.com.
